About the Team

Our GoFood team consists of 70+ zealous folks from various disciplines working towards a common mission. As Nasi Goreng is to the people of Indonesia, we are to Gojek: providing the nourishment to sustain our business from the inside out. Our main responsibility is to cater customers with the best possible selection of food at the most affordable price that offers the best user experience to consumers and growth for merchants and drivers. How does one achieve this, you may ask? By collaborating diligently with our consumers/driver partners in an effort to solve their daily problems.

As a team, we’re concerned not only with the growth of the company, but each other’s personal and professional growths, too. Along with a common drive to solve problems, our team bonds over our shared love for tea, movies and TV shows. With WFH becoming more normalized, you best believe we’ve been sharing our favorite ways to prioritize a healthy work-life balance at home (Netflix, anyone?😜).
